my favorite verse

a person's favorite verse reveals a lot about them.
here's mine

Psalm 45:10-11
Now listen, daughter, don't miss a word:
forget your country, put your home behind you.
Be here—the king is wild for you.
Since he's your lord, adore him.

in college i was dealing with a lot of the scars that a religious upbringing can leave behind and trying to find love and worth somewhere.  in a moment of desperation God gave me this verse.

He was telling me to forget the past...where i came from...what i'd been thru.  and to be present with Him in the moment. 

'the king is wild for you.'  ...that always stirs up my spirit...and makes me giggle a little.  we don't often associate a king with being wild.  it's an uncommon trait.  kings are well groomed and composed.  they follow tradition...they are anything but wild. King Jesus is wild...he gets his hair all messed up, forgets His manners, and throws the schedule out the window.  for me.

that's so crazy.
and wonderful.

He saw me walk into the room and just went nuts...hehehe.

so...because He is my Lord...i will adore Him...

may you realize that the King is wild for you as well and may you learn to adore Him with all that is in you.


  1. "'the king is wild for you." That line is truly awesome indeed. Weeeeeeee!

  2. I like that image about the king being wild for me. One of my favorite verses is Psalm 9:9-10 (NIV)

    9 The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
    10 Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.

    We were going through a particularly bad time when I read that and I just loved the fact he was a refuge and a stronghold and that he would never forsake me :)



i really appreciate comment away...
